    Default Movement Card of Halifax MZ899

    Halifax MZ899 was lost on operations with 433 Squadron, August 16/17, 1944. As near as I can determine, its first op was on August 12, 1944. Was this a new a/c or just new to the Squadron? If anyone has the movement card for this a/c I would be curious as to what it says.

    According to the Air Britain 'Halifax File' it had only served with 433 Squadron.

    Thank you Simon. I notice this a/c is not listed on RW Walker's site.

    Many thanks PeteT! It seems this was a brand new aircraft lost after less than 2 weeks on the Squadron.
